I have been here a few times, once in the summer for the annual Lansing Be a Tourist in Your Own Town event and once in the winter for a tea party.

My husband and I went for one of the tea events they had awhile back and we had a wonderful time. They had live music, delicious tea, great snacks to go with it and afterwards we got to freely roam/tour the house and the yard. Beautiful place. :)

We attended a baby shower here and it was a beautiful perfect setting! There was a gorgeous sitting room where we watched the mother to be open gifts, a dining room and a kitchen.

We came to the Turner-Dodge House for the Xmas tree competition. The rooms are beautiful & well maintained. There isn't much to do in the East Lansing-Lansing area (we moved from Los Angeles), so this small hour-long trip to the house was a nice family activity.

Lovely old house superbly preserved provides a look into the old days of Lansing. Excellent tours with interesting stories of the auto-industry family.

While visiting Old Town Lansing, I noticed a poster advertising an artist's fundraiser being held at the Turner-Dodge Mansion on June 3, 2012, so I checked it out... I'm glad I did! The admission to the first floor and grounds was free during this event (with refreshments provided, as well). What a beautiful place!
